The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?

Robert Dubac’s THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is an international comedic phenomenon. Described by The New York Times as “Hilarious... a one-man tour de force!” it is hands down one of the funniest solo shows you will ever see.

Men and women from eighteen to eighty laugh non-stop as Robert Dubac embarks on a quest to answer the age-old question, “What do women want?” With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, he seamlessly transforms himself into five hysterical boneheads who offer sidesplitting advice on how to best straddle the gender gap - all while drinking a beer.

Union organizer, rabble-rouser & child rights advocate, Mary Harris Mother Jones was only 10 years old when she left famine-stricken Ireland. Overcoming inconceivable personal tragedy, Mary Jones dedicated her life to serving the sick and fighting for fair labor laws to become one of the most influential political activists in the United States. This one-woman, 60-minute play stars the incomparable Jan Justis, a nationally recognized dancer and winner of The Colorado Theater Educator's Award.

Eleanor, the Queen who Birthed Democracy

Saturday, August 20 at 7 pm

I’m Eleanor and I’m MAD!

I mean just who was the most beautiful, the richest, and the most learned, royal, lustiest, bravest, and craftiest woman in Europe for centuries?

And who introduced all sorts of useful goodies you still use today?

And who gifted you with some of the best stories ever told?

Me. But do you remember my name like Cleopatra’s --a mere duffer? Or Elizabeth’s -- a childless stick? NO. So I’m coming to your theater in La Veta on August 20 at 7 o’clock to set things straight.
